Night¨ to express his extreme depression and sadness. Michael R. Little says that the poem, ¨is a meditation on loneliness and isolation, centering on one man 's lonely nighttime wanderings and suggesting that his individual experiences represent the human condition.” Born on March 26, 1874, Frost didn 't always know he wanted to be a poet. He loved to write and did not decide to
Methods utilized frequently are interactions between people, family bonds, descent into death, desperation for survival, indifference to the well-being of others, as well as generosity and selflessness to their fellow man. b.

When Elie was in the hospital after they were all freed, it says “From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me.
Dylan Thomas is a Welch poet who deals with themes such as life, death and time. He is most known for his poem “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night”, which is a villanelle directed at his dying father, asking him not to die peacefully, but to leave his impression on the world and to go out with a bang. Additionally, another poem by Thomas which deals with the concept of death, and the force of time is “The Force That through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower”. When comparing and analyzing these two poems by this poet, the reader can observe his particular use of metaphors, repetition and imagery to convey his inner feelings towards death and its cyclical nature. Throughout both poems, the writer makes use of these poetic devices in similar and contrasting ways to relay to the reader his inner battle with the concept of death.
This shows Crooks explaining what he has to go through and how much it affects him. He has nothing to keep him occupied in his free time as when it 's dark he has books but explains that he doesn’t like them as he possibly can’t read. Crooks showed
But none of this meant that Strang was illiterate or simple. Although his teachers "not unfrequently turned me off with little or no attention, as though I was too stupid to learn and too dull to feel neglect," Strang recalled that he spent "long weary days ... upon the floor, thinking, thinking, thinking ... my mind wandered over fields that old men shrink from, seeking rest and finding none till darkness gathered thick around and I burst into tears."

Writers at this time were looking for what little light they could find, or expressed their sorrow in elegant stories and poetry. Donald Justice, an upperclassman, records his observations in the bleak poem, Pantoum of the Great Depression. “At no time did anyone say anything in verse. It was the ordinary pities and fears consumed us, And if we suffered we kept quiet about it. No audience would ever know our story” (Justice).
Loss is an experience unique to each individual and James McAuley and Gwen Harwood explore this in their poems “Pietà” and “In the Park”. The free verse “Pietà” bears witness to the physical loss a father endures on the anniversary of his son’s death, while in contrast, the sonnet “In the Park” explores the loss of self-identity that a mother feels in her role as a parent. The physical loss that accompanies the death of a loved one is depicted in “Pietà” when the narrator recounts how his son came metaphorically “Early into the light” of life, “Then died” one year prior. By accepting the part that death plays in one’s life, he acknowledges that “no one (is) to blame” for the loss, however, this resignation does not console his anguish. Just as he is consumed by his grief, so too is the mother in Harwood’s narrative but her pain stems from a loss of self-identity due to motherhood.

He had called out to me and I had not answered” (112).This shows that he regretted not being able doing more in his father 's last hours and made moments more precious to him. He was changed so greatly from previous event and could recognize that and no longer do the things he wished . Wiesel says, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep.
The people in the office are staying in their only little bubble, until Bartleby appeared. Bartleby appeared to be a complaint, hardworking man. He would “ran a day and night line, copying by sun-light and by candle-light,” until one day Bartleby prefer not to comply with what the narrator wanted him to do (Melville 47). This marked Bartleby’s first and not last act of nonconformity. However, if readers look more closely at the statement, “I would prefer not to” it is not “I will not,” stressing that Bartleby is rebelling for an emotional reason and not a moral choice.
(Gerund, provides evidence on how hard it was -ing) “The look in his eyes as they stared into mine, has never left mine” (Wiesel, 119) Going to a concentration camp being poor can truly be challenging. Beneath the poor man he was telling them information because being down in the dirt traveled on many times people don’t look at him with respect. (Prepositional phrase) But, of course, the people didn 't listen because he was poor. Of the stressfulness and miserable images they had in their head they were way too scared to only image what was next. (Infinitive, starts the sentence “of”) He closed his eyes as though to escape time” (Wiesel, 17).
